ST. LOUIS Those who yearned for the St. Louis Blues to reach a new milestone in the Stanley Cup Playoffs became convinced: Maybe this could be the year.
Such optimism was snuffed by the same Los Angeles Kings that booted the Blues last year. This time, the defending Stanley Cup champion beat St. Louis 4-2 in the best-of-seven conference quarterfinals.
In the wake, Blues fans have...
Before diving into the discussion that is the goaltending situation in St. Louis, let's stop and think back to Fall of 2012. During those few months we were focusing all of our anger and hatred towards the NHL lockout and those responsible for putting our favorite sport on hold. We all just wanted to see the St. Louis Blues play, especially considering they would enter the year...
What should the Blues do with Chris Stewart and Patrik Berglund? I recently touched on this topic when I outlined all of the restricted and unrestricted free agents the Blues have to address prior to the 2013-14 season, but I was curious what fans thought about the situation.
There's really no easy way to answer this question as there's a number of ways you could approach...
Now that it has been quite some time since the St. Louis Blues were bounced from the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the second year in a row by the Los Angeles Kings, it is already time to start looking forward and analyzing what the Blues must do to get over the hump next season.
There are several key decisions that will need to be made by general manager Doug Armstrong. Several players...
The Blues are just days removed from a disappointing playoff exit. Though the pain is still fresh, it's never too early to start planning for the future. It's never too early to start examining what went wrong and what can be improved to secure the elusive Stanley Cup. Now is as good a time as any to start discussing player contracts.
This summer is going to be an extremely...
St. Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said it was no big deal that he and goalie Jaroslav Halak argued about playing time during the playoffs, calling it an ''everyday occurrence.''
Hitchcock and general manager Doug Armstrong both said Sunday that he didn't anticipate major roster changes after the Blues squandered a 2-0 series lead against the Los Angeles Kings...

The Blues have built the framework for a winning program in the ultra-competition Western Conference.But the project remains incomplete. The Blues are good enough to play the defending Stanley Cup champions to a virtual standstill, but not quite good enough to beat them.They earned respect from their rival but they did not advance. The Kings set the standard in the NHL these days...
from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
Blues coach Ken Hitchcock and goaltender Jaroslav Halak had a heated disagreement outside the club’s locker room the morning of Game 4 in Los Angeles, multiple sources have confirmed to the Post-Dispatch.
The argument was triggered by Halak being late for the Blues’ team meeting before their game-day practice and...
Mouth agape, Ken Hitchcock struggled to process the buzzer-beater that crushed the St. Louis Blues' season. Goalie Brian Elliott sank to his knees in disbelief.
For the second straight playoffs, the Blues finished with four straight losses to the Los Angeles Kings. They didn't get swept this time, it just felt that way.
Especially to Hitchcock, who called out the cluster...

This is a brutal picture in every sense of the word. At least you can’t question this fan’s dedication but her attire is brutal. From the shoes to the jean skirt to the awful shirt, all the way to the Vladimir Sobotka jersey. The tattoos and the died hair certainly add to the winning combination though. You stay classy, St. Louis. [@chasenpucks39]
Its hard to decide if it’s this St. Louis Blues fan’s beauty or class that makes her so sexy.
Either way, hot.

ST. LOUIS In a quiet locker room, gruff answers were issued in clipped sentences.
"We lost an important hockey game," Jaden Schwartz said. "Frustration is definitely part of it. We live to fight another day."
"That's playoff hockey, Alex Pietrangelo added. "And we have to keep grinding."
"We had our chances, and we didn't bury them...
St. Louis Blues forward Jaden Schwartz didn’t take to the overtime loss too kindly on Wednesday night. Schwartz was backchecking at the end of a shift and his man, Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov, scored the game winning goal because Schwartz couldn’t get back in time. Schwartz took out his frustration on the bench with his stick and the Blues now head back to Los...
